April 6, 2017 – Airbus has launched a new offer: Airbus Interiors Services (AIS). Based in Toulouse, AIS is built on the engineering know-how of the former Airbus Corporate Jet Centre (ACJC) and is part of Services by Airbus, dedicated to supporting airlines with their cabin upgrade development strategies.
AIS offers various retrofit solutions, guided by an experienced team of engineers and supply chain specialists. By combining the competitiveness and reliability of manufacturer-developed solutions with the agility of bespoke creations, AIS aims to deliver upgrade solutions, tailored equipment and innovative products to Airbus standards.
“We are delighted to welcome AIS into the Services by Airbus family. The offer perfectly complements the Airbus upgrade solutions,” said Laurent Martinez, head of Services by Airbus.
AIS currently comprises three business lines to respond to airlines’ needs:
Tailored equipment: This covers a large scope of tailored equipment, from single monument to large zone outfitting, developed and delivered either for Airbus (SFE) or to airlines (BFE). Those cabin items are designed and manufactured specifically for each airline’s needs by AIS.
Upgrade Solutions (cabin & connectivity): These include hybrid solutions combining Airbus Service Bulletins (SBs) and AIS solutions answering a particular need for an airline.
Innovative products: AIS designs and produces products for the benefit of the Airbus customer community. These products are part of the Airbus cabin portfolio. They include, for example, a new central ceiling stowage for the A320 family ‘classic cabin’.
